Sleeps 10, 4 Bdrm, 4 Bath, 2 Living Rooms, 3 Decks, Breathtaking view
Over 30 years ago I met my husband Greg. Before we were married he brought me to Dale Hollow Lake because it is where is father grew up as a child and he has many family members that still live in the area. Greg has visited Dale Hollow every year for over 50 years. I have been coming here for over 30 years every year with my family. The kids have pretty much grown up boating, water skiing, and enjoying the lake and the community. We have seen many changes over the years. We purchased the 'SunCatcher' property with the idea of building a small rental cottage but when we started to build we soon came to the realization that it would be much larger than we expected. Thus we ended up with four floors. We drove from Ohio to Tennessee every weekend for over a year to work on the house. We have had many wonderful visitors that love the house as much as we do and we hope everyone that stays will enjoy it too!
Bonnie purchased this House in 2003
Why Bonnie chose Byrdstown
We purchased this property because of the location and the view of the lake, marina, and mountains. Also, because of the convenience to launching our boat and being on the water in just a few minutes. We purchased it too because it is in a quiet neighborhood. We love the location!
What makes this House unique
The unique layout of the home is great. It has four floors with each floor having its own full bath. Three of the floors have covered decks. One of the most awesome things about the home is the night view. If you sleep in the loft bedroom you can raise your head at night and see the lights from the marina, and the bridge which lights up the water. It is so beautiful. You can sit on any of the decks and listen to the sounds around you. It is so serene. Lots of space, lots of privacy, and a great place to vacation. We built the house for others to enjoy as we have for many years.

Excellent home for multiple couples
Fantastic home offering 4 bedrooms and 4 baths which is perfect for unrelated adult couples. Lots of stairs but that comes with homes in the area that overlook Dale Hollow. The view can't be beat. Great location to access the marina.
So happy you and your family had a great vacation. The stairs is what gives each couple privacy to their own floor and what makes the house unique since each floor has a bedroom and bath. The view does not change though no matter what floor you are on.
Look forward to you staying again in the future!
Great Place to Stay!
Beautiful house. Each floor has a bedroom and bathroom which gave us a lot of privacy. The best part is the views. Each floor has a deck and the view of the lake and Sunset Marina is gorgeous.
Thank you for renting the home and I am very pleased you had a great time. The house is definitely a great place to stay. Even when I arrive there and open the door each time it takes my breath away.
Hope to have you stay again anytime!
Great while it lasted!
The Suncatcher is truly a lovely home and accommodated our family well. Looking out on Dale Hollow Lake was breathtaking both day and night. We enjoyed playing board games outside, stargazing, and watching boats come in and out of Sunset Marina.
The beds were comfortable, and bathrooms were well supplied with towels. The kitchen had tons of plates, bowls, glasses, cups, and pots and pans, but renters should bring serving bowls and baking dishes. There's adequate parking for several cars, and it only took a few minutes to reach the marina.
All in all, the days we stayed at the house were terrific. Our dissatisfaction came upon arriving home to learn that the home owner felt that we had not treated the property appropriately and therefore withheld our damage deposit. We communicated our strong disagreement with the owner to no avail. We've rented at Dale Hollow for many years, and always have received excellent comments upon checking out. so this disagreement has been quite an unfortunate ending.
I am happy that you loved the home. It is definitely one of a kind at Dale Hollow Lake. Beautiful views, privacy and only minutes to the marina. The house is kept in pristine condition and we expect our renters to realize this and follow through with keeping it that way during their stay.
I understand that you are in disagreement with the decision to withhold your deposit but in texting you you did admit to several of the items that were damaged. I sent you photos of each one. We had damage to our brand new stove, newly stained deck, and excessive cleaning due to a large spill in the refrigerator which ran under it that was not cleaned up. You also took two brand new pillows and left two older ones in the home which I brought to your attention. I do not want to go into this any further.
You gave our home a lower rating because you left damage in the home but yet you were extremely pleased with the home itself. I am not responsible for your actions while in the home but if damage is done I do not wish to pay out of pocket for the damage. I have rented this home since 2003 and I have only kept full deposits two times.
Here is the definition of Disappointing: ""Sad or displeased because someone or something has failed to fulfill one's hopes or expectations." You are disappointed because you got caught not following rules.
I want my other renters to know that I am truly disappointed in the complete disregard for rules and property. On the first day I became aware that there was a dog in the house so I called you and you said you would make other arrangements for the dog. However, on the second day there were two dogs. My house has a NO PET policy which you were aware of. Taking advantage of others causes problems for everyone. We had just delivered a new table and chairs to the property and your dogs destroyed the legs and seats not to mention other damages. I can't believe that you would even put a review here. I feel very sorry for others that you take advantage of.
Beautiful home! Beautiful mountain view! Owner Mrs Bonnie is the best!
My family spent Thanksgiving at this beautiful home. It was plenty of space for my entire family. The mountain and marina view was gorgeous! More than enough parking spaces for four cars. Each conversation we had with Mrs Bonnie was amazing! She was so helpful with the entire experience. My family and I would definitely go back!
Everything was perfect. Beautiful view, well maintained, great time had by all.
